Apple to release Leopard next week

Mac OS X 10.5 to ship on Oct 26

Apple has confirmed Tuesday what rumor sites have been speculating on for days: Mac OS X 10.5 'Leopard' will hit store shelves on October 26. The Leopard Server operating system will be released at the same time.

OS X 10.5 Leopard will cost £85 for a single user licence and £129 for a Family Pack (five users) and Apple states that the software will be ready to ship on 26 October.

Apple announced the release date - which had been delayed since last April, when the company shifted development work to its iPhone - this morning.

The operating system, the first from Apple since it released Mac OS X 10.4 in late April 2005, will run on all Intel-based Apple computers and laptops, as well as as PowerPC G5 machines. It will also run on PowerPC G4 hardware as long as the processors run at 867 HMz or faster. Max O X 10.5 requires a DVD drive for installation and 512MB of RAM, according to Apple officials.
